Lamination available for Posters :
1) Cold lamination (Gloss or Matt) :
Most posters are laminated on the front only, using cold lamination. Cold lamination is available for both dye ink and solvent ink posters and they can be either Matte or Gloss. Lamination is to protect the print especially if the poster is an indoor poster printed using dye ink; as dye ink is not 100% water proof. However, we also laminate solvent posters if they are to be used for a long period of time as this would better protect the print and make the poster last longer.

2) Hot (hard) lamination :
Printed posters can also be laminated all around using hot lamination. This protects the poster even more as the hot lamination wraps the poster in a rigid film so it is less prone to damage. Hot lamination is only available in Gloss finish.
